Are there Guidelines for doing Apologetics?
From the Christian Apologetics and Research Ministry:
Almost every discipline has a set of rules and guidelines that help a person perform better. In fact, guidelines could be produced for nearly any endeavour. Why should apologetics be any different? Following are some things I have found that are very helpful in developing apologetic skills.

BibleEvidences.com
Author: Fred Williams
This site outlines some of the highlights of the substantial evidence that supports the Bible as the true Word of God. I have tried to keep these highlights as brief as possible, instead of reproducing detailed information that has already been done by many others all over the Web and in libraries.

CS Pierce’s Neglected Argument
Author: John W. Oiler, Jr., PhD.
In 1908, Charles Sanders Pierce, the recognised father of America’s only distinctive philosophy, namely pragmatism, and the mentor of William James and John Dewey, published an argument entitled “A Neglected Argument for the Reality of God.” In it, he insisted, “The endless variety in the world has not been created by law.

Evidence for God
Is God real or just an outdated concept? Who is God? Do we need God or can we get along fine without Him? These were some of my questions about God before I came to faith. This site provides answers to questions about God, evidence for God’s existence, His care and love for humankind, and His provision for joyful living both now and into eternity through His Son, Jesus Christ.

Archaeology

Flood Stories from Around the World
Author: Mark Isaak
The stories below are flood stories from the world’s folklore. I have included stories here if (1) they are stories; (2) they are folklore, not historical accounts or fiction by a known author; and (3) they involve a flood. In most borderline cases, I included the story here. For example, one story (Hopi) tells of a flood which was avoided and never occurred.

Problems with Mt. Sinai in Saudi Arabia 
Author: Brad C. Sparks
Adventurers Larry Williams and Bob Cornuke in their recently reprinted book claim that the Bible over and over states “explicitly…that Mount Sinai is in Arabia. Howard Blum has retold their story in a new book, The Gold of Exodus, published by Simon & Schuster (1998), and Cornuke has now come out with his separate book (2000). There is a certain amount of irony if not implausibility in their argument which in essence tries to take Mt. Sinai out of the Sinai.

Believe what the Jewish Apostles taught not what the Greek Philosophers taught. “Conditional Immortality” is the biblical belief that the “immortality” of the soul is not inherent (Greek thinking) but conditional (Biblical thinking) upon receiving the gift of everlasting life through faith in Jesus (Yeshua). It is part and parcel of the gospel. God alone has immortality — anyone else becomes immortal only as a result of God’s gracious gift (1 Timothy 6:16, Romans 2:7).
